Really friendly staff but what a shockingly dated and musty smelling hotel. Cleanliness was ok but because it was old and tired it didn't feel like it was clean. If it was to have a major refit it would tick all the boxes! In the state its in, it should be no more than £30 per night tops. Not the... More

We recently stayed at the Star Hotel for a night and drove straight past it and round the treacherous one way system once more. Once we found it we were slightly disappointed by the outside as it was rather old and not amazingly welcoming. We were surprised to see that we had to pay for our parking which was situated... More

After reading previous reviews- I was a little hasty to book this hotel, but being a Saturday night with a lot going on in Southampton we had no other choice . On arrival , the hotel is very dated& needs modernising in the corridors and public areas and the outside deffinately needs a coat of paint. But apart from that..... More

We missed it driving around and had to make a loop to see it again. It is actually right on the high street, hidden in plain sight! Parking had to be booked before hand and we did not know that. The inside parking was full and we were advised to park on the high street as it is relatively safe,... More

We had a party in the Victoria room with around 60 people. Tha staff were amazing, nothing was too much trouble, they made it a great night. The hotel may be a little in need of a coat of paint but we liked the history and quirkiness. The bar is more modern and very comfortable.

The hotel is located right on the high street, near to many restaurants and bars. It also has ample car parking and free wifi, but thats about all it has to offer. First impressions gave me a bit of a heart attack. Probably the worst looking, dilapidated building in the whole of the city. Looks like the exterior hasn't had... More

While working in Southampton I stayed here. It was a decent stay with a good breakfast. However I would have been disappointed if I was staying here for a weekend away. It's perfect for contractors or groups of lads having a night out but I wouldn't recommend it for a few nights away with your wife.
